Food

With its arsenal of bourbon selections, live blues music and Southern-comfort food, The Twisted Tail is the kind of place where one might choose to end the night.

But the weekend brunch menu makes a compelling case for starting the day there.

Another restaurant has entered the highly competitive culinary fray in the South Street-adjacent part of Queen Village. Luckily for Village Bar + Kitchen, 705 S. Fifth St., flavor is in its favor. In addition, the bright corner space is inviting and relaxing while the menu focuses on comfort dishes with a New American twist.

Wife-husband restaurateurs and chefs Bridget Foy and Paul Rodriguez have bounced back from the fire that destroyed Foy’s namesake restaurant on South Street in 2017 with the recently opened Cry Baby Pasta. And you just might weep if you can’t get a reservation.

The cozy and elegant space was packed on a Wednesday night and we soon found out why. The menu is simple and concise — but the menu items are executed to perfection.
